By emphasizing the role of the heart in the worship of self and substance, Welch forces the addict to face the grim reality that who or what he worships will control his life. When he idolizes his selfish desire for a substance then there can only be bondage, but when he worships God more than himself then the liberating truth of the gospel will always set him free. As a pastor, biblical counselor, and a redeemed (not recovering) ex-heroin addict, I believe Dr. Welch has finally given every pastor, theologian, layman, and anyone caught in the bondage of idolatry / addiction a biblical road map to true and lasting freedom.

From the Publisher
A Worship Disorder: Will we worship ourselves and our own desires, or will we worship the true God?
Scripture reveals addicts’ true condition: like guests at a banquet thrown by 'the woman Folly,' they are already in the grave. (Prov. 9:13–18) Can we not escape our addictions? Following Jesus, we have 'immense hope that God can give power so that we are no longer mastered by the addiction.'
